Learn how Chris Hedberg uses UMAXX to keep his course at peak performance and improve his bottom line.
Chris Hedberg is superintendent of the Ridge at Castle Pines, a 77-acre course outside of Denver, CO.
From a few holes, you can see all the way to Pikes Peak, and downtown Denver.
Using reclaimed water is a big priority for the Ridge—they’re even a Certified Audubon Sanctuary.
Chris uses UMAXX stabilized nitrogen fertilizer on his course: a urea-based product with a 46-0-0 analysis.
UMAXX can be used as a granular or dissolved into a spray mix.
UMAXX’s extended longevity helps Chris save money in many different parts of his business, such as reducing labor expenses.

How Others Micromanage Course Nutrition with EEFs

"I've used POLYON® fertilizers for years;
it's been a greater product depending on location and turf variety."
Jay Neunsinger | Boundary Oak Golf Course | Walnut Creek, CA
"UMAXX® stabilized nitrogen in every tank on our greens
during the growing season has increased the quality
and playability of our putting surfaces."
Craig Moore | Marquette Golf Club-Greywalls Course | Marquette, MI
"Since switching to DURATION CR® we have experienced
a vast improvement in the conditions of our rough;
the density and health of the turf has never been better."
Greg Boring | The Country Club of Scranton | Clarks Summit, PA
"I've used XCU® fertilizer and really like the way
the product releases and feeds the plant for long-term health."
Tim Cunningham | Youngstown Country Club | Youngstown, OH

It has made a noticeable difference; I like the green color and the controlled release means fewer applications."
Dave Renk | Lookaway Golf Club | Buckingham, PA
"We have used UFLEXX® stabilized nitrogen for the last 3 years as
our main fertilizer nutrition on our bentgrass surfaces;
we can control our fertilization rates precisely."
Steve Houlihan | Blue Mound Golf & Country Club | Wauwatosa, WI
"DURATION CR® fertilizer has changed the way I fertilize
my roughs and green surrounds; I have no idea why it took
me so long to make the switch. Awesome results."
Victor Frederico | Tavistock Country Club | Haddonfield, NJ
"We use the POLYON® fertilizer on tee and green surrounds
to maintain color without getting the flush of growth,
which makes playing conditions unfair to the golfer."
Terry Negen | Marshall Golf Club | Marshall, MN
"We use NUTRALENE® fertilizer on all our fairways, our tees
and rough starting in late spring, early summer;
it's become a vital tool in our maintenance program."
